What do I need to do if I receive a notice of injury?
If an employer receives a notice of injury you must provide your worker with a written notice informing them of their right to make a claim under the Act within 14 days. The form of this notice is set by WorkCover Tasmania. If the injury results in, or is likely to result in, total or partial incapacity you must also notify GIO within 3 business days. Once you receive a claim for compensation, you must notify GIO within 3 business days. You are also legally required to complete the employer section of the claim form and forward it to GIO within 5 business days. If an employee suffers a serious injury or death, you must notify WorkCover Tasmania immediately on (03) 6233 7657 (outside Tasmania) or 1300 366 322 (within Tasmania).
To report an injury to GIO, please call us on 13 10 10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To notify GIO of a new claim you simply need to provide your contact details, your workers compensation policy number, the worker's name, address and date of birth and details of the incident.
